How To Sandblast


We get a lot of inquiries from people who are interested in learning how to sandblast.  With that in mind, we decided to produce an easy to understand beginners guide on the subject.  The term “sandblasting” is a generic term, which originated from the early days of abrasive blasting, when sand was the original type of blasting media commonly used.

While this guide is called “How To Sandblast” it actually encompasses all types of abrasive blasting, such as soda blasting and media blasting.  The guide is not a comprehensive instruction manual.  You can think of it as a beginners overview, sort of like Sandblasting 101.  It is an introduction to give you an idea of what is involved should you decide to explore abrasive blasting for your project, hobby or business.

Should you decide that you would like to learn more about a particular type of abrasive blasting, we encourage you to give us a call at 888-772-3263 or email us at:

We have technical support people, who have years of experience in different types of projects.  We can help you determine the best way to approach your particular project, or assist you with selecting the best equipment to meet your needs.

We hope that this guide provides you with an easy to understand introduction to abrasive blasting!  Here is a link to the guide:

Hope this helps you!

Who We Are

ACE Automotive Cleaning Equipment is a leader in high quality, affordable, American made media blasting equipment. We have been making all types of media blasting equipment since 1976….sandblasting equipment, abrasive blasting equipment, soda blasting equipment, bead blasting equipment.

We originally started out primarily focused on automotive related users. And while still a large part of our business, we have continuously branched out to service many different types of customers, from mold and fire damage restoration companies to woodworkers, swimming pool cleaners, boat yards, construction companies, school districts, governmental agencies, equipment rebuilders, and many, many other customer groups; each one having its own set of unique challenges and requirements.

As a result, ACE has developed a highly knowledgeable and capable customer sales and support team, well experienced and helpful to customers on a very wide range of uses and applications. Using our problem solving capabilities, we have assisted customers on hundreds of different kinds of projects and jobs. Our straight forward approach to helping customers select the proper kind of equipment and media, has earned us a reputation as honest and sincere people to deal with. There are no used car salesmen or telemarketer types in our organization. We don’t oversell our products, tell lies about of our competition, or use high pressure sales tactics.

All of our equipment is made to function in an efficient and cost effective manner. We don’t use “bells and whistles” to increase the price of our equipment. Efficiency, cost effective purchase price, and low operating costs are our goals.

Our abrasive media blast cabinets are made out of 11 and 14 gauge steel with all welded construction. Our in-house powdercoating line produces a rugged, durable finish, which protects all of our equipment for many years. We use ASME certified pressure vessels on all of our direct pressure blasting equipment. Adjustable pressure regulators, foot pedal operation, hi-visibility florescent lighting, large viewing windows, and generous armholes make for an operator friendly and comfortable work experience, when using our ACE blast cabinets.

Our soda blasting equipment is used worldwide, and is recognized and well known as a reasonable cost alternative to other higher priced equipment, without sacrificing performance. Our ACE Model 2-PS Heavy Duty Portable Soda Blaster, for example, is the choice of many professional and do-it-yourself types around the world from Australia to Zimbabwe.

How can we sell such high quality equipment at affordable prices? It’s simple. We sell factory direct, without middleman markups. Our parent company sells the exact same equipment through many of the very large industrial supply companies with their standard markups and large overhead budgets for things like paid internet ads, large print catalogs, and brick and mortar retail stores. When you buy directly from ACE, you skip all of that.

Visit our website at or give us a call at 888-772-3263 to find out how we can help you solve your media blasting, abrasive blasting, or soda blasting needs. You’ll be glad that you did.
